  • Julius Caesar Acts 1-5 By: Madison Dixon 
  • Intro 
  • Act 1
  • Beware the Ides of March 
  • Act 2 
  • Act 3 
  • Before Caesar leaves, the soothsayer warns him about March 15th. Thinking it's not a big deal, Caesar brushes it off and leaves for his trip. When he returns, Casca tells Brutus and Cassius that Antony offered the crown to Caesar three times but he refused. Since Cassius believes Caesar isn't fit to be king, he creates fake letters to convince Brutus Caesar shouldn't be king.
  • Act 4
  • Lets look at his will before we finish the plan
  • Sounds good!
  • Brutus is out in his garden contemplating whether or not Caesar would be bad for the country; when he receives a letter, it said that Caesar would be a horrible king and ruin Rome. Minutes later, Cassius and his conspirators show up wanting to talk to him about Caesar. When Brutus tells them he wants to stop Caesar, they start to plan out Caesar's death for the next day. Then you see Caesar talking with his wife, and she does not wish for him to go to the Capital the next day because she had a horrible dream that night. When he finds out he might receive the crown, he decides to go just in time for Brutus, Cassius and the conspirators  to arrive and take him to the Capitol.
  • Act 5
  • As the group arrives, Trebonius starts the plan by drawing Antony away from Caesar. Metellus then walks up to Caesar and asks if his brother, who was banished, could return. When he says no, the group starts to break off and kneel in front of him. Finally, Casca kneels and stabs Caesar letting the rest of the group join too. Brutus tells the conspirators that they acted as friends to Caesar and to cover their swords and hands in blood as a sign of freedom. Antony returns and sees Caesar's dead body  and says he will join them as long as they let him be buried and tell him why they killed him. Brutus agrees and leaves him with the crowd not knowing he plans to turn the town against them.
  • Octavius and Lepidus meet at Antony's house to go over the names of  conspirators and decide who should be killed. Once things are settled, Lepidus leaves letting Octavius and Antony talk about whether or not he is fit to rule along side them. Octavius says he trusts him while Antony has some doubts. Meanwhile, Brutus meets at a camp with Lucillius. He says Cassius is unhappy with Brutus which makes Brutus worry their ties are breaking. When Cassius arrives he brings an army and starts arguing with Brutus. They eventually  make up and decide to surprise Antony and his army at Philippi. 
  • When both sides arrive, both sides meet in the middle while Octavius draws his sword swearing he will avenge Caesar's death. Once they depart, Cassius tells Brutus that their future is uncertain and asks Brutus if he would walk through Rome as a captive. He says he would rather die than go through that and that this battle marks the end of the struggle for power. As the battle goes on, Cassius is glad to see Octavius' army weaken, until he sees their backup. Since he misunderstood, he asks a soldier to kill him with his own sword. Later on in the battle, Brutus realizes he won't win and asks one of his men to hold his sword so he can run into it. Seconds before he dies, he sees Caesar's ghost telling him it's his time to die.
